Perhaps most intriguingly is the gap left by Ibrahimovic but there's still big money to be made by playing in the MLS, as shown by new league top earner, according to Sportekz, Javier Hernandez:

There is a wage structure in the MLS but it includes clubs being able to sign three players as 'Designated Players', whose wages can come from outside of the restrictions.

In their first year Inter Miami haven't signed up any big names with Rodolfo Pizarro and Matias Pellegrini joining as 'Designated players' although there is time in the transfer window in the summer to add a third.

With Zlatan having left the 'States,' to move back to Europe and joining AC Milan again, there is a big gap to be filled in the MLS.

All eyes are likely to be on Florida, Becks and his new club - whether not they have a big name player to carry them.
